All About Web Hosting

Comments Off

There are a couple important requirements when you want to start a website. Of course, one is your domain name, or the URL that visitors will type into their browser’s address bar to to access your website. However, web hosting is also important because once you purchase your domain name, you need a location to store the pages, images and scripts that will make up your website. The name of this service is called web hosting, or simply hosting.

Web Hosting in a Nutshell

Hosts have powerful computers, or servers, where your files reside. You must associate your domain with your host, so that your website files come up any time someone wants to access your website. If you use the same company to purchase hosting and your domain, this may be done automatically. Otherwise, the common method to associate these two services is to enter the nameserver information from your host into the control panel of your domain registrar.

Shopping for Hosting

There are several types of hosting that you will see when shopping for hosting. Shared hosting means that multiple customers are located on the same server, and this type of hosting is ideal for small websites and blogs that don’t need a lot of space or bandwidth. Dedicated server hosting is better for large websites with greater needs, and ensures that your websites are the only ones on the server. Virtual private servers refer to virtualization, in which the server is located on the same machine as other servers, but is created in such a way that it works independently from the other virtualized server accounts.

Generally, shared hosting is the most cost efficient, and some hosts provide this service for less than $5 per month. Dedicated and VPS hosting is more expensive and can cost as much as a several hundred dollars per month. When comparing between the same type of hosting, you’ll want to take note of the total file space allocated for each plan as well as the monthly file transfer, or bandwidth, you’ll be able to use.

Operating System

Prices can also vary between operating systems. Server versions of Windows and Linux/Unix operating systems exist, providing support for various scripts and features. Most hosts offer Unix hosting by default, and this supports common PHP and CGI scripts as well as the HTML Web programming language. If you have specialty needs, such as ASP or the .NET Framework, you will require hosting on a Windows server. However, if you’re brand new to website operations, a Unix host will suit your needs and may be able to save you some money.
Once you purchase your hosting plan, you can begin uploading the files that are your website’s backbone.

How To: Develop a Visitor Management Strategy

Comments Off

Many companies have facilities that combine publicly accessible zones with private offices. In addition, it is common that visitors may be given limited access to parts of the facility in order to work with company personnel. However, this can present serious security and safety programs, mandating the development of an effective visitor management and tracking policy.

Visitor Management Goals

Because of the importance of an effective visitor management system, it is imperative that there be a clear understanding of what functions management wishes their visitor management system to include. The primary goals of any visitor management system should always include the following:

  • Preventing unauthorized personnel from entering company facilities.
  • Tracking authorized visitors to ensure that they remain within authorized areas.
  • Making it impossible for individuals or groups to counterfeit visitor IDs and thus gain access to unauthorized areas.
  • Include a “built-in” expiration system so out-of-date visitor IDs cannot be used to gain access to corporate property.
  • Allow for the fast and convenient processing of visitor IDs by security personnel.

Thus, the ideal visitor management system will be highly automated and user friendly, allowing for the fast processing of visitors. Most importantly, this system should be easily scalable and transportable, allowing for the same system to be used at all corporate facilities.

ID Badges and Visitor Management

One effective way to create an integrated visitor management system is by using on-site ID card printers. In this way, the company can print a distinctive design on their ID badges, making counterfeiting the badge very difficult or even impossible. In addition, the design can also be used to indicate what areas the guest is authorized to be in. This can be especially important when dealing with large numbers of outside contractors or guests.

Another advantage of using printed ID badges is that the designs can be changed when needed, allowing for quick and easy changes in policy and design. By changing designs on a regular schedule, the cards will have a built in expiration date, making it impossible for unauthorized personnel to make use of older cards to gain access.

Finally, by making use of ID cards with RFID chips or magnetic stripes, the visitor badge can allow for tracking of the visitor throughout the facility, by recording what doors were opened using the card, or what areas the RFID chip entered. If the visitor enters a forbidden area, an alert can be sent to security personnel, who can then take appropriate action.

Visitor management strategies are an important part of maintaining a company’s security. However, by making use of modern techniques, a company can ensure the safety and convenience of guests and employees alike.

2.  Forum Marketing

If you join a few top forums in your niche, you can use a signature to help promote your website.

5.  Guest Blog Posting

You can also contact blog owners and ask if you can provide a guest post for their blog. They will allow you to include a link or two back to your website, which helps you build backlinks and traffic from their blog. Many blog owners need fresh content and will welcome your guest posts.

All five of these methods can help you drive traffic to your website at no cost. If you cannot afford professional Internet marketing services, you can use these methods to build backlinks, increase your search engine ranking, and create some direct traffic, as well.
